Who can have a check

If you are aged 40–74, you may be eligible for an NHS Health Check.
For emergency support with adult social care call 07730 637 194

For district nurses, you can call 07467 440 406, 07467 440 369 or 07585 881 108. Sorry for any inconvenience.

However if you have been diagnosed with some medical conditions, you are probably already being monitored or checked by your medical team or doctor so you do not need another check up.

You will not need a check if you have had an NHS Health Check in the last five years, and if you have already been diagnosed with:

  • chronic kidney disease

  • coronary heart disease

  • diabetes

  • heart attack

  • heart condition (atrial fibrillation)

  • high blood pressure

  • high cholesterol

  • stroke or a mini-stroke.

You are also not eligible if you are taking medication to lower your cholesterol.

The checks are available to anyone living, or registered with a GP, in the borough.
